So what’s Gumbo PAC’s “Anybody But Vitter”, anyway?


Anybody but Vitter?

 On the WGSO radio 990 AM-Bayoubuzz Google Hangout webcast, today, Jeff Crouere and Stephen Sabludowsky discussed the emergence of a PAC called Gumbo Pac but which appears to have one rue in mind, namely defeating David Vitter in his race for Louisiana Governor.

Crouere asked Sabludowsky if he was familiar with the organization and did he see a billboard sign promoting the ABV, Anybody But Vitter movement.

Sabludowsky said he was generally knowledgeable about the organization--that appears to be gaining steam.

Who is behind the organization?  The Louisiana Democratic Party? A candidate or candidates?

Crouere said that part of a commercial focused upon the Washington DC Madam controversy and asked whether this would be an issue in the election.

Sabludowsky said that he personally does not believe it is an issue but there are related matters that bother him, such as Vitter’s pursuing the Fifth Amendment in that case.  He also said he did not like the fact that outside money was pouring into Vitter’s campaign and his super-PAC and just like he didn’t like Grover Norquist telling Louisiana what to do, he doesn't care for outside contributors having an inordinate amount of power in the state’s elections.

Crouere said that Vitter was receiving the major endorsements among politicians such as John Kennedy, Steve Scalise and others and speculated that Kennedy and others might be supporting Vitter for future political opportunities.

Sabludowsky felt one of the reasons Vitter has obtained such support is the aura of invincibility and that it was Vitter’s race to lose.  He also felt that the focus upon Vitter could work against the organization to Vitter’s benefit as some might feel Vitter was being unfairly targeted which could generate sympathy support.

Below is the relevant segment from the WGSO-Bayoubuzz Google hangout.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
